The last couple of months, your teachers and principal have given Chapel messages about well-known, and impactful members of the Christian faith and about what we can glean from their life and example. We have called this sermon series: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants. We have heard about amazing historical figures, from Gregory the Great to Mary. Today, I will be speaking on a person, both from history, and from historical fiction…Alexander Hamilton.
You’ve all heard from many of your teachers concerning the Giants of the Faith. How do you compare as a follower of Jesus Christ to those greats of the past? How do you want to live your life? Are you living according to your intended purpose? These are questions we all must ask ourselves. The Giant we will talk about today is Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He asked himself these types of questions often in order to make sure he was on the right path and I challenge you all as you listen to my message this morning to challenge yourselves concerning these questions.

One of the many attributes of God is his “transcendence.” Transcendence – means to go beyond […]
“STEM“. Those four letters are rampant in education these days. It has become one of the most talked about components of modern-day schooling similar to what “gluten free” and “non GMO” have become to the food industry. It’s everywhere! Just like trends in the food industry, there are trends in education as well, and some trends can be […]
Annapolis Christian Academy sees its role clearly as the third leg of the stool, necessary for this transmission of Christian culture in Corpus Christi, to the children of Christian families, who belong to the broader church community. It does this self-consciously by educating them in a historically tried and true way, what we call Classical and Christian.
Given this vital partnership between parents and school, it is essential that the Christian school provide organized efforts to meaningfully connect parents with the school’s core vision, philosophy, values, and practices. One of the best ways to do this is for the school to host a Parent Academy.
